Platform: Windows
Version: 1.6.2

When first called, socketConnection gives an error. On subsequent calls it
performs correctly. Thus the first call has the effect of "priming" the
connection. Eg

> socketConnection(port=50)
Error in socketConnection(port = 50) : unable to open connection In
addition: Warning message: 
localhost:50 cannot be opened 
> MIM <- socketConnection(port=50)

The first call gives the error irrespective of which port number is
specified. The second call shown here requires, correctly, that a socket
connection using port 50 on the local host is available.
